Ellen Huang, PE
The development of the first atomic bombs during World War II required the design and construction of three "secret cities" at which the work could be completed. This webinar examines the background that led to the Manhattan Project and the efforts of many organizations and people behind this crucial undertaking. Besides engineering techniques, we will describe management techniques used and the deployment of concurrent research and production lines during the project. In addition, we will discuss the influence of the secret cities on the large-scale suburban development that would dramatically alter the physical and cultural landscape of the nation in the post-war era.
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
